    I think it looks pretty solid mate. To make the figure in the suite pop a little from the background, maybe add more haze to the background. As it is now, the figure and the rocks behind him are almost in the same value range.

    It's not a huge problem however.

    It's a great piece and I agree with ZombieMariachis about the character being hard to read because of lack of contrast.
    Also I would add that the color scheme is a bit uniform and adding some variety to the colors would be great.
    Especially in the foreground maybe you could make the green a bit colder, gradually,on the left side.
    Also the rock at the fore ground could use some color variations in my opinion.
    Hope it make sense.

    Good start - I agree on making the character pop a bit - I would lean toward/try a little higher chroma, pure color for his suit - maybe toward red or orange. Also watch your light source - undefined currently. Also make sure to develop your reflections in the pool - is that supposed to be methane? Chlorine?

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Love it. What if that cool light beneath him was hitting him a little hmm?? Could be sahweeeet yesss?? If you didnt like the color pop, or the value pop ideas...you could also try just adding a slight glare on his visor to make him more noticable.

    Great job

    my only crit is that he's just standing there. Even a little gesture could go a long way for telling a story and immersing the viewer, imo.

    Man this is great stuff!!! I really like the pallet you're working with. But I wonder if maybe you could push the colors a bit more? Maybe introduce some other color with the light at the top left to bring in other earth tones?

    Thanks guys. I will apply some of your suggestions as well as I know how to, and will post the final in my sketchbook rather than cluttering up this section.
    I like the haze idea it helped everything.
